2018 SLS Transportation and Lodging
Getting to Corvallis:
The conference will be held on the Oregon State University campus at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center, 725 SW 26th St, Corvallis, OR 97331.
If you are flying in from out of state, we recommend flying into the Portland International Airport (PDX) and renting a car or taking the HUT Shuttle or Oregon Express Shuttle from the airport to Corvallis. The shuttles depart PDX every hour or every two hours.
Getting Around Corvallis and the OSU Campus:
Oregon State has a very walk-able campus! It takes approximately 15 minutes to travel from one far end to the other far end.
On Friday, the Beaver Bus is a shuttle that will get you around campus. Parking on campus is free after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all days on weekends (assuming there is not an OSU Men’s Basketball game). The Reser Stadium parking lot has plenty of parking and is very close to the conference center.
The public transit system in Corvallis is free. The bus system does not run on Sundays, but it can still be a great way to get around town if you do not have a car. Transportation network companies (Uber, Lyft, etc.) are a great option for getting around Corvallis if you do not have a car.
Staying in Corvallis:
For convenience, we recommend staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in Corvallis. This hotel is a three minute walk from the CH2M Hill Alumni Center, where the conference will be held. All conference attendees can receive a discounted rate at the Hilton Garden Inn. Once you register, you will receive an email from the SLS team with a promotional code. This code will discount the rooms by approximately $90 a night!
